    Train/bus travel to Monaco

    by Dabs Updated Oct 10, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We were staying too far away from Monaco to consider public transportation but if you are staying along the French Riviera in Cannes or Nice or along the way, it might be cheaper and easier to take a train or a bus to get into Monaco

    Parking in Monaco

    I had heard that parking in Monaco could be a problem so we parked in one of the 1st garages we saw near the Jardin Exotique (Botanic Gardens), we probably should have driven a little further into Monaco but at the time I was thinking that Monaco was only about a mile long and that everywhere in town was convenient. What doesn't show up on a flat map of Monaco is the steepness of the streets and the twisting roads. Fortunately the city planners have assisted people in getting around with staircases and elevators taking you from one level of the city to the next. Look for the signs saying "Ascenseur Public" for the public elevators.

    I also figured that closer parking would be more expensive but according to the attached website the difference in prices between the various garages is minimal. I'm pretty sure there were signs saying how many spots were available in the various garages.

    Nice Airport

    The closest international airport to Monaco and Monte Carlo is Nice Airport in France some 30 minute drive South of the Principality. The airport is served by both domestic French flights and many international flights. The airport has two terminals and offers easy access to and from Monaco.

    This is an experience of a lifetime!

    I was told its the best way to get from Nice Airport to Monaco. Train is slow, but cheap. Car/taxi is slow and expensive.

    You go to their desk in the main terminal, and then a minibus takes you to the helipad. 5 minutes later (its an hour by road) you land in Monte Carlo.

    Its over the sea all the way, and you have the Alps to the north. Great views of Monaco as you come in. Utterly spectacular.

    Did the same on the way back.

    It was about £50/€75 single in those days.

    You can book on line.

    Walking around Monte Carlo you will see and hear cars of every type. The familiar sound of a Ferrari engine was all around us. Being from the US, we don't see many of those. In Monte Carlo, I thought everyone drove one.

    Bottom line, if you are a car afficionado, you will definitely enjoy the sites.

    Gare SNCF - Train Station

    .
    Avenue Prince Pierre, Monte-Carlo
    At this convenient station, trains arrive
    and depart from Nice, Cannes, Antibes,
    and Menton every thirty minutes.

    ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

    The station is just a few minutes' walk from the Casino and the Rocher.
    If you're carrying a lot of luggage, it's best to take a cab to your hotel, because
    of the area's steep hills everywhere.

    By boat, if you can afford it:))

    A postcard...

    To get to the Principality of Monaco's capital (and the only city) - the fabulous Monte-Carlo - by boat or more likely by a yacht, especially your own one, you must be really, but really rich. What with all those yachts one sees in the port. Still, the views must be magnificent, probably the best ones you can get approaching Monaco. And at the very least rivaling the ones you get from above as the road (carrying you with it) climbs down into the city.

    This tip is actually mid-getting there and mid-must see. I do not actually know why I put it in this section. I wanted to think how to recreate the views you could see from getting by boat. So if you need this particular tip not only as a practical thing, but as aesthetical, too, you might go to the furthest end of the pier and get the same effect free of charge.

    Monte Carlo can be very expensive. You can get there within hour from as far west as St Raphael, Nice is about 20 minutes away. We travelled from the small town of Le Dramont.

    From Nice airport to Monaco you can take a bus.
    Bus lives every hour from 9.00 to 21.00 and it takes 50 minutes to reach there.
    It charges 14.70 Euros one way ticket.

    Monte Carlo

    The money in the town is evident when one arrives by train. Quite a contrast to riding in other parts of Europe. The trains are also upscale.
